Heidi, the owner of Forktown and long-time tour leader in Italy, created an exclusive culinary itinerary with Meet Piemonte, a small-group tour company specializing in the Piedmont region. Heidi will accompany the group as the tour leader and one of her dearest friends & long-time colleagues -- founder of Meet Piemonte, Marco Scaglione -- will be the Italian tour guide.
